The College recognises that there are times when it is genuinely appropriate and useful for students to have access to a mobile phone – for example, to contact parents in emergencies, to confirm or change a collection time after drama, dance or music rehearsals or sports practice etc. However, during class time, mobile phones should be switched off and are only to be used in classrooms for educational purposes, under the instruction of a teacher.
Any student, who is feeling unwell at school and needs to go home, must arrange this through the School front office. Under No circumstance may students use a mobile phone to contact home and make arrangements to leave without the permission of the College.
Mobile phones should be used in accordance with the College ICT Appropriate Use Policy. Inappropriate or unauthorised use of mobile phones, iPods or electrical devices may result in the item being confiscated and students being unable to bring such devices onto school grounds.
Students are solely responsible for the security of their mobile phones, iPods and electrical devices. The school will NOT accept any liability for the loss or theft of a mobile phone, iPod or electrical device.
